Health Matters: Wounds That Won't Heal

Wound care is essential to healthy living. Most of us have experienced scratches or scrapes that healed naturally, but sometimes there are wounds that just will not heal. Other health issues—diabetes, circulation problems, radiation and many more can complicate the healing process, and turn the simplest wounds into complex, non-healing health issues that can cause big problems. Thanks to science, we know wounds need oxygen to heal properly, and when the body isn’t getting the oxygen it needs, there are other steps that can be taken to impact the healing process. In this segment of Health Matters, Kim Landsberger, hyperbaric wound treatment expert at Mercy Medical Center Hyperbaric & Wound Center discusses treatment options. We hope you enjoy.
